Wonderful opportunities for training
Intensive Outpatient Program therapist (Former Employee) – Austin, TX – March 5, 2014
Typical days at work were busy with assessments, patient case management, care coordination and paperwork. We also did intensive group 4 nights per week. Staffing and other administrative duties on Friday. Co-workers were wonderful and supportive of one another. I got a lot of training and there is a lot of encouragement to learn in this job, but the unfortunate part of it all is that there is very little support in therapists wanting to stretch beyond their department. All that training and nowhere to go... Despite that I did receive a lot of support when there were difficulties with patients which is a hard part of working in mental health.
Supportive colleagues, training
Lack of support to evolve as a clinician
